People living with diabetes often have peripheral neuropathy, a sensory deficit causing a 20 times higher risk of falling. Additionally, half of those suffering from neuropathy risk foot ulcers, which may lead to amputations due to lack of healing and infections.
Walk With Path is focused on developing Path Feel, a smart insole solution that prevents diabetic ulcers and improves balance. Path Feel acts to improve balance by providing vibrational feedback to the soles of the feet. The sensors contained in the insole track important biomarkers for the development of diabetic foot ulcers, pressure and temperature changes.
KEY CUSTOMERS & INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE
Walk With Path is already active in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and are keen to expand sales to Japan.
Unique selling point
Path Feel is a holistic solution for diabetes foot health.The haptic feedback in the form of vibration, alongside the validated gait analysis, is not provided by other diabetic foot ulcer solutions out there.
Walk With Path is working on novel products for the aging market. East Asia’s rapidly aging population coupled with reduced access to daytime care workers, makes it increasingly important for Asian society to ensure the independence of its elderly population. The products of Walk With Path have a great deal of potential for supporting more active lives among the elderly, while simultaneously reducing pressure on the healthcare systems.
Walk With Path is currently looking for distribution partners and sales channels for our products, as well as funding.
